Identify the logical fallacy.

Smith may be smart, but he's new to politics. He'll either go off the deep end with some crazy cause and draft a bill we'll all regret, or he'll be a complete coward and stick with majority consensus. Vote for experience and stability. Vote for Jones.

2 Answer

  • D. endorsement¬†
    E. 
    either-or fallacy
  • Answer:

    D. endorsement

    E. either-or fallacy

    Explanation:

    In the first example, we see a case of endorsement. Endorsement refers to a person defending a particular position or product not because of the actual positive elements of the object or idea, but because of the benefits that he gets in doing so.

    In the second case, we see an example of the either-or fallacy, also called a false dilemma. This arises when a speaker presents two possible options, both of which are undesirable, but all other possible options are avoided or dismissed.
